James Franco: Now we are going to recreate a scene from one of my favorite movies: Rebel Without a Cause, starring James Dean and Sal Mineo.

James Dean: We were coming right back. I told you.

Sal Mineo: You sure?

James Dean: Sure, I’m sure.

James Dean: Are you cold? It’s warm. Here, my jacket.

James Dean: Hey, now can I have the gun, Plato?

James Franco: Somebody’s got to say action.

Dave Franco: Action.

James Franco: No, you can’t say action.

Dave Franco: Why not?

James Franco: You’re not the director. You’re an actor.

Dave Franco: Okay.

James Franco: So, somebody else has to say it.

Dave Franco: Okay.

Director: Action.

Dave Franco: Why did you run out on me?

James Franco: We didn’t run out on you. We were coming right back. I told you.

Dave Franco: You sure?

James Franco: Sure, I’m sure.

James Franco: You cold? Here, take my jacket. Here.

Dave Franco: Can I keep it?

James Franco: What do you think? Here.

James Franco: You’ve have to sniff it. Like rub it against your face.

Dave Franco: You want me to rub the jacket against my face.

James Franco: Yeah, that’s what he did.

Dave Franco: I’m not gonna rub the jacket against my face.

James Franco: Just rub the jacket against your face and smell it.

Dave Franco: Why would I want to smell the jacket and rub it against my face?

James Franco: Because that’s what he did, because he’s in love with James Dean.

Dave Franco: That’s, I mean, it’s typical, man. You give me the worst character, again, and you get to be James Dean, of course. Of course, you get to be James Dean.

James Franco: Of course, of course, I get to be James Dean. Who else is going to be James Dean?

Dave Franco: If you’re such a good actor, you can play him and I’ll play James Dean.

James Franco: You can’t play James Dean. I’m James Dean. Actors sniff jackets.

Dave Franco: Okay.

James Franco: Actors, act. Actors sniff jackets if they need to sniff jackets. Marlon Brando sniffed jackets.

Dave Franco: Okay.

James Franco: He sniffed pants.

Dave Franco: Oh.

James Franco: He did.

Dave Franco: Okay!

James Franco: You’re in Rebel Without a Cause, what’s your cause? Not sniffing jackets?

James Franco: Sniff it.

Dave Franco: You sniff it.

James Franco: You sniff it.

Dave Franco: No.

James Franco: Just what I thought.

Dave Franco: Okay.

James Franco: You don’t know how to act.
